I have been really busy, therefore not much time for exercising. Nevertheless, I’m not using this as an excuse to avoid working out; on the contrary, I made my exercises short and more intense. I used dumbbells and ankle weights. I think this workout is so cool that I’m willing to prepare a short video to share it with you- but that will have to happen on the weekend 🙂
1. Basic crunch – 20 reps. Hold a medium weight on your chest. I had one 6 pounds dumbbell
2. Reverse crunch – 20 reps with 2-3 pounds ankle weights
3. Bicycle – 20 reps with ankle weights
4. Basic plunk – hold for 1 min ( or at least 45 sec.)!!
Take a minute to stretch your abs and repeat the circuit again. Don’t forget to breath! Don’t hold the air- exhale. I didn’t take any pictures to demonstrate but I promised you the video so step by in a few days
Interesting facts about diet: Start drinking tea and eat more proteins! A cup of brewed tea can raise your metabolism by 12 percent, according to one Japanese study. Researchers believe antioxidants (called catechins) found in tea provide the boost. Our bodies need protein to maintain lean muscle. Keep that in mind next time you prepare a snack.
